That's funny, because Obama has imposed tougher economic sanctions on Iran than any previous president.

He won't be up for re-election and he can do pretty much whatever the hell he wants to do....starting with major payback for those who went against him (starting with our prime minister...lol). Behind that friendly "all-American everyman" smile lurks a man who is chomping at the bit to take revenge (HIS own words.....).
This doom-and-gloom vision of Obama you've constructed bears little resemblance to the actual man.

So did Romney ever give a concession speech? I went to bed right after networks started calling it. Let's hope Obama can do a better job this time, I really hope so.

BTW Joe Kennedy III is adorable. Seems more grounded and real than most of them.

What happened to Romney 's predicted at least 300 electoral votes? Anyone know the popular vote? Florida still hasn't been called.

It's also funny as almost the same expression was used four years ago, but then talking about Osama Bin Laden. Look where he ended up.

Indeed he did. It sounded tired and borderline robotic, but I can't blame him at all. I got the overwhelming impression of "get me on a jet to Tahiti right now" out of it. I almost felt sorry for him.

Latino Voters In Election 2012 Help Sweep Obama To Reelection

Gender Gap In 2012 Election Aided Obama Win

Just read that Bachmann won. Ugh.




Donald Trump is not happy with President Barack Obama's successful campaign for a second term.

The real estate mogul and reality show host took to Twitter to express his displeasure, launching into a screed against the Electoral College and broader Democratic process.

Donald J. Trump



@realDonaldTrump

This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!

More votes equals a loss...revolution!
6 Nov 12

Popular vote totals at the time of his tweet showed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney with a narrow lead over Obama, with votes still left to count.

In a later tweet, Trump called the Electoral College, which allowed observers to call the election for Obama at around 11:12 p.m. on Tuesday night, a "disaster for a democracy." Twelve years ago, many Democrats would have likely agreed, as a hotly contested race in Florida gave the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush, who lost the popular vote.

Did anyone watch Diane Sawyer? I'm hearing that she was out of it. Apparently it was all over Twitter that she seemed tipsy. Drunk Diane Sawyer is a new Twitter handle. Damn, I wish I had seen that.

Here's Video Evidence of Why Everyone Thought Diane Sawyer Was Shitfaced On Air Last Night


I posted the link to Trump's twitter a page or 2 ago...I'm too lazy to look back, but it's there if you want to see the comical meltdown with your own eyes.

I like how the other correspondents were trying to keep straight faces when she asked them about the exclamation mark.

Yep. I think in general the GOP needs to dream it all up again. Clearly they're out of touch with a large segment of the population.
